& Macrocarpa 2m3
Seasoned, Excellent Burning 2024
Gum is a hardwood. Slow burning, maximum heat output. Suited to both open fires and log burners. A softwood or kindling should be used to start your fire and a medium or soft wood should be used with gum once a good fire is established. Gum will absorb rain and this should be considered when purchasing during winter.
Macrocarpa is a medium-density firewood with good heat output and reasonably long burn time. Not suited to open fires as Macrocarpa has a tendency to spark.
Good to know:
This is our premium mix, its tried and true.
In terms of heat, it would be hard to beat.
Macrocarpa needs a little more preparation when starting from a cold fire but once you have a hot base you will be rewarded with a warm home. Once the fire-bed is glowing red with embers, mix burn both woods during the day. At night fill the fire with Gum which will keep your home cosy long into the night.
Ash should be cleaned from firebox every 3-5 weeks. Once cool – most fruit trees love it as mulch.
Make sure your firebox and flue are cleaned and inspected each year for your firewood to work efficiently.
ORDER NOTE: Ordering two loads (8m3) of a combo like this one is often more expensive than ordering 4m3 of each of the two single wood types.
